Weather Bad = Birding Good

Lousy weather on the 10th Jan but I had an hour before dark so I shot down to Buckenham. Well worth it with two patch ticks by way of a reward. Firstly a Dark-bellied Brent with a modest flock of Pinks feeding on the grass. Shame it wasn't a Pale-belly, but never mind. Next, a scan from the riverbank revealed a fine ringtail Hen Harrier quartering over Claxton. This was presumably the bird I had seen with Reg on the dark side of the river yesterday afternoon.
